LAYERxlayer Has Got Your Back

Key to the City BY liza darwin 04/24/2012

It’s easy to associate backpacks with metal lockers and field trips, but LAYERxlayer has created a very grownup take, with natural fabrics, hidden pockets, and straps to hold pretty much anything you might need to carry. To prove just how functional their Of a Kind creation is, Leah Fabish—who designs the line with her BF Patrick—took the pack on a tour of New Haven, Connecticut, (the couple’s soon-to-be home) and documented their day for us.

"Its such a beatiful and calming haven and I am addicted to their waterlemon juice at breakfast. They also have Marmite, which I have a weakness for."

“As we ventured into the Ninth Square area of town, we spotted Alexander Liberman’s crimson sculpture ‘On High’—the towering work cast amazing shadows, and I decided to take out my sketchbook and pencil to capture it.”



“Next stop: English Building Market, the most amazing vintage store in the city. Cabinets overflowing with kitchen tools and racks full of chiffon and lace greeted us, but a bin of scarves and bandanas caught my eye. I chose a small cotton pocket square—and resisted the urge to buy brass flatware.” 



“As the sun started to set, we made our way toward East Rock. The path twisted around and around, and we finally made it to the top where we were greeted with a panoramic view of the buildings below.”
